Today's Marina Visit

As part of my now near monthly Marina visits, here is today's series, continuing with the Cat theme.

The highlight which I didn't expect to see there was the Lagoon 57.

Perhaps someone who is not from this area can have a guess as to where these are taken?



At rest waiting for the next Jap hunt.

The Steve Irwin sits in Melbourne on a PR exercise. The Bob Barker sits here docked most of the year as it's old and needs a lot of maintenance. They are hoping to make it to the Med on an anti-shark fin cause and will also travel to Japan to stop "Dolphin Cove" from happening.


One HECK of a LONG way from home!!!



Comfort at it's best... at sea.



Sexism alive and well.



Custom something???

Re: Today's Marina Visit

You are Australian, the Valiant PH (?) is a long way from home and the Bob is tied to the dock with a sizable population area in the background. Melbourne, Australia perhaps?

Re: Today's Marina Visit

You are moderately close. Between this location (Van Diemen's Land) and Melbourne though, is one of the most trecherous stretches of water in the world.

Re: Today's Marina Visit

I'm always in Melbourne.... yep, I live there, in Clayton.

My new wishlist already has this cat on it. Maybe by the time he wants to sell it in 10 years I might be able to afford it. If you're cruising into the city on Beach Road you'll see it at St. Kilda (the northern marina). It truly dwarf's the 30+ ft monos that it's parked beside.

Re: Today's Marina Visit

All those pictures except for Abatao are from Hobart today.

Lagoon 57 labelled as being from Port Villa.

This post was in docklands for the boatshow. I heard a rumor that it was thinking of going electric!

Why, that looks like Princes Wharf in Hobart, Mate! And Active Transport seems to be in Con Dock.

You shoulda looked further... Insatiable II was anchored just past the Casino in Sandy bay.

Cheers,

Re: Today's Marina Visit

I didn't go near the Casino in case I got sucked in.

I later enjoyed a tour of the Sea Shepard vessel. It is interesting what they do, however I'm sure there's a whole other thread on that somewhere.
